69 Was a Different Time

Stewie, my old friend from high school was complaining the other day. He’s been upset for 41 years. Can you dig it?
You see, we lived about a two hour drive from White Lake, New York (Woodstock) and prior to the big show, his older brother offered him a ticket to Woodstock – for $25. – which included bus fare there and back. He turned it down. Too expensive.
Different times.
This song – Coming into L.A. was a song another bud and I played at gigs we did. We had this particular song down – it was the highlight of our set for sure.
